Here to Stay

I wish this were just an isolated incident,
Hope this could be called a coincidence
But shit, it happened again
death's torrent took one more friend!

I'm just trying to make it through the day
but my instability won't seem to go it's own way,
and it looks like the indecision is here to stay.
So why even bother anyway?

A chorus within begs me to try,
like the anthem that assures me, I will not die.
So amidst the abyss of self-doubt and lies,
it pushes me along in spite of my plaintive cries.

It would all be so easy, my bucket to kick
but fuck it, I want to keep trying,
despite my depression and sighing.
So like it or not, I'm here to stay;
with hands held out, I hold on--Just one more day...
